I still have a persistent problem with mixed-up icons in Windows but
particularly Turnpike software which makes it hard to use. I've tried
all the common suggestions namely:
*Delete ShelliconCache and reboot
*Start in Safe mode and shut down (this changes the icon mix up but does
not solve it)
* Enlarge icon cache via C:\MaxIcons.REG
It's all happened since a hard drive change over and any other
suggestions are welcome.
